Zumba melds the upbeat rhythms of Latin music with aerobic exercise and interval training for a fun, effective workout. Fancy Footwork Fitness offers several styles of Zumba classes, such as Zumba for kids aged 4?12 and Z-Box Fitness, a combination of cardio boxing and dancing inside of cardboard boxes. Hot Hula Fitness, a workout inspired by the traditional Polynesian dances of the South Pacific, isolates larger muscle groups as drums beat in the background. After fitness classes, clients can opt in for restoration with basic yoga.
Getting into shape typically requires a significant lifestyle change, something Gwinnett County Adventure Boot Camp's owner Montrell Wallace knows all about. He had been working as an electrical engineer for nearly four years when he decided to become a fitness instructor. His degree and years of schooling surely made the decision difficult, but he was committed to his passion, ultimately becoming an NSCA-certified personal trainer and an NESTA-certified adventure boot-camp trainer with specialties such as women's weight loss.
At Gwinnett County Adventure Boot Camp, he and his team of supportive coaches secure a fun and noncompetitive environment where students can make significant lifestyle changes of their own. Wallace and company's outdoor boot camps blend core exercises, sprints, jump roping, hiking, and obstacle courses into one constantly changing workout that is designed for all fitness levels. In addition to toning torsos and turning abs into tic-tac-toe boards, they also offer nutritional counseling.
At American Top Team of Gwinnett, students can train in the 14,000 square-foot facility with the Bellator tournament-champion mixed martial artist Douglas Lima. There Lima and other staff train pro MMA and UFC fighters as well as beginners. The gym welcomes trainees of all ages, body types, and skill sets to pummel punching bags, spar on 3,500 square feet of mats, and train like the pros in the professional-grade octagon. The knowledgable coaches here draw from experience in the ring and years in the gym to help students unlock their fighting potential in classes of mixed martial-arts, Muay Thai, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and wrestling.
Though princesses are hard to come by this side of the Atlantic Ocean, visitors to Once Upon A Fairy Tale mirror royalty in almost every way. The helpful staff outfits children sizes 4?16 in tutus, pageant dresses, necklaces, and tiaras, completing the regal transformation with glamorous eye shadow and nail polish. They also organize royal birthday parties, often hosted by one of the boutique's own costumed princesses who leads children through teatime, fashion shows, and seminars on the most effective way to wish upon a star. Parents join in the fun with mother-daughter dress-up sessions and father-daughter teatime, and the boutique lets guests continue their monarchy outside the boutique with a shop full of custom tutus and dresses.
At Unique Events of Atlanta's gatherings, adults convene for evenings of interactive theatrics, gaming, and group activities. The staff's creative scribes conjure up a theme to serve as the plot of interactive murder-mystery dinners, where participants discover clues over dinner and drinks, evoking their inner gumshoes to identify villains and summon orphaned saxophone riffs left over from the '80s. Other events include casino nights, where card lovers can compare poker faces, and old-fashion game nights, where friendly competition ensues over Monopoly boards, Uno decks, Twister mats, and Xbox Dance Central screens. The event extraordinaires also host marriage proposals, anniversaries, and reunions with repaired lawnmowers.:m]]
The buffet at The Bee's Knees Art Studio isn't your standard buffet: it features glitter, paint, ribbons, beads, modeling clay, and a bunch of other things with very little nutritional value. Of course, they aren't there to eat, but to use to create art during visits. The studio gives artists of all ages the chance to do just that by opening its doors for parties, open-studio sessions, and weekly lessons where instructors teach students about different artists and their techniques. Bee's Knees also keeps an ideas book handy, which students can flip through for inspiration instead of just examining strangers' tattoos on the walk over.
